Programming :: Create/delete Temp/backup Files Through A Shell Script?

Dec 31, 2008

I have a shell script that need to create some files:

1) backup files of user passed in file ( that will be written by this shell ).

2) temp files that the shell will create and later delete/remove.

This shell script will be used from my local dir ( I am not a super or a sysadmin ). Users of this shell will call this script to run on their local files in their respective directories. When my script runs, it errors with the following:

cp: cannot create regular file `./listfile.txt.backup': Permission denied
/home/myUser/tools/myShellScript: line 12: listfile.txt: Permission denied

for the temp I was able to avoid this error by creating the temp file in the /tmp directory. All I want is for this shell script to run, create/modify/backup files in user's local dirs.

The user dir has the following permission:

drwxr-xr-x testDir

the file that needs to be backed-up has:

-rw-r--r-- listfile.txt.

General :: Best Way To Backup And Restore / Home Directory And Reinstall Kubuntu

Dec 3, 2009

So I've finally given up on saving my kubuntu install that wont boot. I've searched, and looked, but couldn't find a thing.My delema now is to make sure that I:

a) get all of the user data safely packed up onto my external USB drive. I believe it's all in the home directory. I'm not sure about getting hidden files though...

b) get the new install to go smoothly, and not mess up grub or the parralell XP install on the same hard drive.

c) get the user data back on the computer and recreate the user structure. Permissions were messed up already, so setting those up again is not an issue.

So, I've been poking around, and this is how I think things should go:

a) tar cvpjf backup.tar.bz2 /home to get my home directory backed up. Not exactly sure how to get from here to my external hd, but I'm sure I can figure it out

b) just run a live cd of kubuntu, delete the old partitions, and reinstall over them?

c) unzip the tar into by /home directory.

That's all I've been able to find so far. How do I set up the users? Will they show up as soon as I untar? Will the resinstall play nice with my windows install? Will I get all the hidden files too? Is there anything I'm missing?

Server :: Backup / Restore - Importing LVM Setup At Destination

Jun 8, 2009

I am doing a LVM replicate to another server.
Example: has / , /boot , swap and few LVM partitions. All are in /dev/sda disk of size 80GB. /dev/sda5 is a LVM partition which has only one vg00 and it has 2 LV's (/var and /usr) and a SAN storage connected to this server which has around 500GB of single partition(a LV partition) called /data and its under vg00 .

Now I have build another server called "" with same RedHat OS version - RHEL 4 and want to import the same LVM setup at destination. Down time or unmounting the filesystem is not a problem (but am trying to reduce the down time as much as possible). Is there any way that I can take a proper snapshot of whole LVM disk and restore with same setup at destination without losing the data and the lvm file system layout?

Programming :: Excluding Directory From Backup In Bash?

Jun 30, 2011

I've got the following code and kludge. It's working okay except that there's a directory called "Archive" which I don't need to backup. I've tried various combinations of &&, -a, etc., and I'm kind of at a loss for getting this right.

Here's the code I have so far:

# backup subdirs as individual tarballs with prepended timestamps and
# move them somewhere else.
# --exclude "/path/to/dir/*" (Doesn't seem to work)


How can I write that line so that I can loop through all of the subdirs, tarring them up, but excluding the "Archive" subdirectory?

General :: Write A Bash Script To Restore Deleted Files To Original Location?

Dec 5, 2010

I have managed to write a bash script that moves files to the recylce bin instead of being deleted. Then (with a bit of assistance) wrote another bash script that deletes the files from the recycle bin. Now I need to write one that will restore the files preferably to their original location? I am very new to linux and stuggling with where to even begin...any ideas? There seems to be some advice about creating a cloning tree, but I've never heard of them?

General :: Create Backup/archive Ubuntu 10.04 System Files?

Jul 22, 2010

I'm trying to create backup/archive my Ubuntu 10.04 system files (so I can restore it in case my system get corrupted). More specifically, I'm trying to zip the important files in my root directory not including my home directory (which includes my documents which I backup separately/more frequently) to an external hard drive attached via USB (called 'My Book').

Since File Roller didn't give me quite the level of control I was looking for, I created a script that I could execute to backup and archive regularly. Here's a snippet:
cd /media/"My Book"/"Linux Backups"
NOW=$(date +"%b-%d-%y")
sudo zip -r -T -v Backup_Root_FileSystem-$NOW / -x /media/'My Book'* /media* /proc* /sys* /mnt* /dev* /cdrom* /home* /'lost+found'* | tee -a $LOGFILE

Im running on Solaris 10 and I am trying to write a script that will look at all the directories in export.home and then grep for the those in passwd and will display the directories that don't have a password associated with them

Here is what I got so far but its not working.

if [ $test="" ]
echo "No Home Diectories Found $i"

All this does is display what was listed in the export.home. What I want it to do is just display what was not found in password.
